Re: firewalls and dual booting
I can't see the point of all those pieces software to be honest, but on one partition they should check the whole computer when they run. Of course on 2000 they won't be actively checking while you run, but I'm presuming if you want to go on the Internet for any prolonged time you use XP? So it shouldn't be a problem at all.
